It makes sense that one might want to find a partner with whom they can share their herbal indulgences.To see whether they live up to the hype, I tried out three cannabis dating apps: High There, 420 Singles, and 420 Friends. There’s a section called “Joints” where you can see and interact with posts from other users, follow trending hashtags, and post your own updates and pictures.En español | You made the mistake of asking your adult daughter if that guy she went out with last night was "anything serious."

Marilyn, a 57-year-old single colleague of mine, recently reconnected with someone she had worked with many years ago. "No," Marilyn said with a laugh, "it's better than that: I'm in like with him — and that's exactly where I want to be." She further confided that they planned to make their reunions "a regular thing — if four times a year can be called 'regular.' But I think that's about all I really want." Marilyn's casual approach to maintaining a friendship with benefits typifies the mindset of older folks who have reconciled themselves to having "great fun" even if it's "just one of those things."

After all, it gets awfully lonely waiting around for "the one." Perhaps you've decided that what you need at this point in your life is someone to talk to and laugh with — someone with whom you can share the sheets, but not the tax refund.
